Deschanel was alerted to the issue and wrote in a post on Twitter.com, "Whoa! Epic closed captioning Fail!" and she has now received an apology from Kala J. Patterson, president of Caption Solutions, the company behind the blunder.

In a statement, Patterson insisted company "sincerely apologises for this error" and "deeply regret" the mistake.
